And we can only be by the impressive job they’ve done, not in radically transforming the 990 Supermoto but in paving the way to a new category of touring

KTM’s Supermoto machines are around the world as the best in the but, by their nature, are meant to be ridden on the long so that is what the Touring is here to fix. It uses the light (58 kg) and compact LC8 engine on the chromium-molybdenum frame (11 kg) as well as the WP but adds a half fairing and on top of that, making it ideal for travels, be them on or even off the


KTM created the 950 Supermoto back in 2005 by taking the from the 950 Adventure and fitting it on a and versatile chassis that was to awesome road characteristics, in what concerns cornering. It and still remains one of the few bikes by a V-Twin engine that like veritable sportbikes most importantly, wasn’t in Japan.

The carbureted, liquid-cooled 942 cc, 72 V-Twin, four valves per cylinder developed 98 hp at 8,000 rpm and 90 Nm at 7,000 which is more than considering the engine configuration. the tubular chromoly space and WP suspensions were there the beginning, marking the beautiful )story.

Also, the hand share a thing or two on the off-road abilities as well as the 7.68-inches of ground clearance.

But, in contradiction with the features and truthful to the on-road the steering head angle is at a 65.6, something that it that nice Supermoto look despite the additional mentioned before.

With the 990 Supermoto T, KTM the various ways in which a can evolve and, to be quite it does it in the most expressive Who did ever suspect that a bike can see its way from coast to and the rider to come off it in one piece? we haven’t yet done that, but we that the new Supermoto is up to the challenge.
